Treatment of ADHD in children and teenagers
Treatment for ADHD is centred around managing the symptoms and enabling the child to minimise the difficulties that can arise as a result of the disorder. ADHD treatment can be medication or therapy-based or a combination of the two.
What you get at our specialist ADHD clinic
✔ A full psychiatric assessment including use of appropriate specialised tools (usually held over two appointments) such as Conners Questionnaires.
✔ Online questionnaires between appointments for ease
✔ A diagnosis and assessment report is provided to you within 14 days of the second appointment, a copy of which we recommend should go to your GP.
✔ Prescription service available as appropriate and indicated by assessment.
✔ Where agreed, shared care with GPs allowing prescriptions to be managed through your local surgery.
✔ Referral for CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) for ADHD as appropriate.
✔ Regular follow up and adjustment of dosage and type of medication as clinically indicated.
